This repository contains a software mvBIMBAM, a version of BIMBAM for multivariate association analysis, implementing a Bayesian approach for genetic association analysis of multiple related phenotypes.

We adapted source codes in BIMBAM to deal with multiple related phenotypes.

Binary executable file

Binary executable file for Linux is in the mvBIMBAM/bin/ directory (complied on 06/17/2014).

A zip file of binary executable file, source code, and example input files for MAC is in mvBIMBAM\forMAC directory (tested on OS 10.6, but should also work under other 10.x)


cd into the mvBIMBAM/ directory

make all

Then, binary executable file will be created in the mvBIMBAM/ directory.

User manual

User manual is in the mvBIMBAM/doc/ directory.

Data in Shim et al (2015)

  • The CAP genotypes are in dbGAP : link
  • (1) Normalized averages and differences of LDL subfractions, (2) genotype data for selected SNPs, and (3) summary statistics (effect size estimate and standard error) for each pair of a single SNP and a single phenotype are available here.
